NYC Photo Conference

I was very very lucky to attend the Photo Plus Expo in New York recently. I have been to a handful of other photo conferences in the past and i highly recommend them. Not only are you in a huge crowd of people that love the same thing you do but you also get to listen to some of the worlds best tell you about why they love what they do and how they do it. A walk with zack arias (!/index) was really cool but the highlight for sure was listening to dan winters ( for an hour. If you have an opportunity to take in a photo conference then go, don't hesitate, just go. Be prepared to be exhausted but also inspired. So some tips you say: Stay at a hotel close to the conference, go a day early and do a pre conference session, plan your lectures well and if one is not what you thought then leave and head to a different one, spend time on the show floor (lots of lectures there too plus all the equipment you want to get your hands on), if they have a party night go (you will get a chance to talk to other attendees and make friends), bring a sweater (the conference areas are always air conditioned and cool), stay an extra day if you can for shopping and street shooting. I have been to photo plus expo and photoshop world conferences and i would recommend both.  photo 201410_nyc_4295_zpsf0c7cd48.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4315_zps912d3574.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4373_zps3e740239.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4416_zps3968ccec.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4443_zps7bed69b4.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4553_zps3e747058.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4658_zps7a995435.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4925_zpse9c5f054.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4950_zps6f6349d2.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4954_zps357c3392.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4980_zps2106a5b5.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_4996_zps9709b389.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5010_zps834ba7bd.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5015_zpsd6e35770.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5028_zps89fd7595.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5041_zps87d057cc.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5054_zps63bd6d42.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5083_zps29879946.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5114_zps69fa7cc4.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5126_zpsfffff5d3.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5163_zpsaca99f41.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5175_zps791db07d.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5282_zpsecdae67b.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5295_zps6ee09fa1.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5333_zps4cc39101.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5383_zps23738d83.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5419_zps049a052b.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5443_zps067d4c5c.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5462_zpscb920a33.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5513_zps704ab4ee.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5521_zps3fa63173.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5588_zps576a2bdc.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5607_zps9eda3022.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5628_zpsfd47f064.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5662_zps5ababee8.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5675_zps6f5b78a1.jpg  photo 201410_nyc_5726_zpsde710ee2.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5743_zps1b3cc175.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5769_zpsb7b1f105.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5772_zpsa6fb8400.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5788_zps851d18e6.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5789_zps97749403.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5796_zps8ee50d3f.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5798_zpsb1803113.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5834_zpse531569e.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5841_zpsf25d5935.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5849_zps85f3ad69.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5850_zpse45ca6fa.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5911_zpsb5d89157.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5917_zpsc598451f.jpg  photo 201411_nyc_5925_zps9cac9d9a.jpg

Do you know how jealous I am that you got to do street photography with Zack Arias? Just a touch bit. Just a touch bit
